"Having your hair coloured is a small investment in feeling and looking good. It really can change your whole image"
 
Feed your hair
Do you suffer with thin hair, hair loss, dandruff, dry hair? Maybe you need look no further than your kitchen for a solution.
 
Without enough protein in your diet your body can't replace the hairs that you naturally shed every day and what you do make can be dry, brittle, or weak. So eat lean beef, chicken, lentils and nuts.

Your hair also needs healthy fats so eat lots of salmon, avocados and olive oil. These foods are jam-packed with essential fatty acids which can moisturise a dry scalp with natural oils.

Hair loss, even in your eyelashes, is a sign of lack of zinc. This can be found in fortified cereals, nuts, beef, eggs, whole grain breads and a whopping 493% of your rda can be found in just 3 ounces of oysters!

A lack of vitamin A can lead to dry, flaky dandruff. So stock up on foods such as sweet potato, carrots, cantaloupes, mangoes, pumpkin, and apricots which are all good sources of beta carotene.
Greek yoghurt is high in the hair-friendly protein vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid is an ingredient you'll often see on hair care product labels) and vitamin D. Vitamin D has been linked to boosting hair follicle health.

In the hair world vitamin C wears a cape and its pants outside its tights. It’s hard to beat this nutrient superhero. It is essential for circulation to the scalp and supports the tiny blood vessels that feed your hair follicles. Too little of it can lead to your hair simply breaking off. You’ll find it in kiwis, sweet potatoes, oranges, tomatoes and strawberries.
 
Adios dandruff and dry hair! 
You’ve got your new black dress on and look and feel great, you’re admiring yourself in the mirror until you catch sight of what looks like snowy epaulettes on each shoulder. But it’s not a part of the dress’s pattern it’s the dreaded dandruff striking again! There are lots of great products out there on the shelves to help rid us of dandruff and dry hair but how about trying the natural route first and see how you get on? 
 
Dandruff: This procedure may not work the first time for some but it definitely will after the second go. Just three ingredients are needed: 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Mix all 3 together in a bowl then apply all over your hair paying particular attention to your scalp. Leave for 15 minutes and wash off as normal. Dry your hair and see how silky your hair feels and how the dandruff has disappeared.

Dry Hair: This hair mask will repair dry and brittle hair. Use this mask every month instead of expensive deep conditioning creams or oils. Again, all you need are three ingredients: a ripe avocado, an egg yolk and some olive oil.
Peel and mash the avocado in a bowl then mix in the egg yolk and two tablespoons of olive oil. Massage the mixture into your damp hair and tuck your hair into a shower cap. Leave it on for an hour then rinse, shampoo, and condition with your usual products. After drying, your hair will feel silky smooth.
Make your hair colour last
Whenever my hair is coloured I feel so much more glamorous in fact I feel like a million dollars. I know you do too. 
 
Having your hair coloured is a small investment in feeling and looking good. It really can change your whole image. So here are a couple of simple tips to prevent fading and boost the shine: when you next have your hair coloured wait at least a day before washing it and then wash only 2-3 times per week to delay the colour weakening. Make sure the water is lukewarm as hot water can fade colour faster.
 
"Read the back of your shampoo and conditioner bottles and check that they don’t contain sulphates as they can fade or dull your hair colour"
 
Some people don’t realise that chlorine in swimming pools can actually change your hair colour so when swimming either use a large crocodile clip to put your hair up high or, if you swim underwater, wear a tight-fitting swimming cap. Not very glam but soooo practical.
 
Hair mascara
Amirose Int Ltd Hair Mascara is the perfect way to conceal those pesky grey hairs and one application lasts for 7-14 days. It works very effectively at grey zapping, is made from logwood extract, contains no peroxide or ammonia and is hypoallergenic.

Great for using the last couple of days before the next hair colour sesh at the hairdresser’s is due when the grey is just starting to peek through again. Or use it for saving you money by extending the intervals between visits to the hairdresser for hair colouring sessions.

Available in several shades. But when choosing be aware that the Medium Brown shade is dark and Dark Brown shade is very dark.

Hair serums
Whether you have curly or straight hair I've got a superb product to tell you about. John Frieda Frizz-Ease Serum controls frizzy, unruly or chemically damaged hair.
 
The John Frieda Frizz-Ease Serum needs to be applied when the hair is damp. Very little is needed, even though the whole head should be lightly covered with it, so the bottle does last quite a long time.
 
Pssst I’ll let all my curly topped Girlies into a little secret: if you mix the serum in your hand with a small dollop of Charles Worthington’s Leave-In Conditioner, apply to damp hair and then blow dry, your curls will be softer, shinier and looser. With straight hair it gives it that sleek look we all crave. Try it and see!
